Daniel Ho - Brief Bio


Daniel Ho's simple philosophy of presenting music with sincerity and artistry encompasses six consecutive GRAMMY Awards, number-one albums on national airplay charts, and top-ten albums on Billboard. In 2010, his solo 'ukulele CD, Polani (Pure), was the first 'ukulele album in music history to receive a GRAMMY nomination. On piano the following year, he received a nomination for Best Pop Instrumental Album for his CD, E Kahe Malie (Flowing Gently).  Daniel’s album On A Gentle Island Breezewas nominated for a GRAMMY in the World Music category.

Daniel's composing & performing abilities shine on "Na Pana Elua."  The song begins at 1:10.

A Honolulu native, Daniel started music lessons at an early age and spent his teenage years orchestrating big band arrangements. At the Grove School of Music in Los Angeles, he excelled in composition and film scoring. He was the leader and keyboardist of the acclaimed '90s contemporary jazz band, Kilauea.

Daniel performs original songs in English and Hawaiian that feature his versatility on 'ukulele, slack key guitar, and piano. Notable credits include singing Prince's “Nothing Compares 2 U” in Hawaiian for the feature film Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008), and his widely covered `ukulele instrumental anthem, “Pineapple Mango.” As an independent record company owner, he pursues excellence in composition, performance, audio engineering, and production.

Ever the innovator, Daniel's custom six-string KoAloha 'ukulele, the D-VI, is currently on exhibit at the GRAMMY Museum.  In addition, he has collaborated with world renowned luthier Pepe Romero in the design of Romero Creations' Tiny Tenor, XS Soprano, and ST Concert 'ukuleles.
